on the economy wednesday night. but foreign policy is something that's critically important given the current state of foreign policy where we have a leader now whose foreign policy has made us weak in the eye of the rest of the world whereas governor romney believe in peace through strength. >> all right. let's talk about the expectations here, karen. the game from both sides has kicked into high gear over the weekend. i want to remind everybody. take a listen. >> president obama's a very, he's a very gifted speaker. he's an experienced debater. he's done these kinds of debates before. this is mitt's first time on this kind of a stage. >> we'd expected all along governor romney will have a good night. he's prepared more than any other candidate in history. >> and i think for us to raise the expectations, he's got to do something spectacular. those things don't happen in debates anymore that there's a spectacular event or gaffe. they're too well rehearsed. >> in this week's debate president obama has a great deal to lose. romney's is the most difficult position. obama's is the most dangerous.
of a bigger picture the fact that the obama foreign policy is unraveling literally before our eyes and on our tv screens. gregg: i suspect that is point you would share? >> the media and "new york times" owes mitt romney a apology. he was right. waited 15 hours, the concerns that silence and weak statement out of cairo was inappropriate response. he was right. the obama administration waited 15 hours as the administration developed. their first reaction was to go after mitt romney. the mead yu followed that and we're finding mitt romney was right. this administration had a very weak reaction to a growing threat and people need to wonder what would have happened if the president came out an condemned this hours as it was happening before the ambassador was killed. gregg: rick, thank you very much. appreciate it. jenna: more on that story throughout the day for sure. meantime a powerful typhoon toppling trees and power lines and proving deadly. where this storm is hitting, we have that just ahead. >>> plus independent voters, they were key to putting president obama in the white house but could
. >> and now foreign policy has reared its head. we have first of all mitt romney and "the wall street journal" an op-ed, saying that these developments are not as president obama says, mere bumps in the road. they are major issues that put our security at risk, yet amid this upheaval our country seems to be at the mercy of events rather than shaping them, not moving them in a direction that protects our people or allies. and paul ryan just now on the laura engram radio show, saying this about afghanistan. >> that echos also what john mccain said on "morning joe" today. are they trying to change the skubts to get off -- subject to get off 47% and other missteps and perceived problems in their camp or see a real vulnerability here after benghazi in the way that the white house has handled this? >> if they see a real vulnerability andrea, it's not born out in the public data yet. look at all the data, that goes back months and months the one place where president obama has been strong is on foreign policy and his handling of terrorism. you can argue after benghazi and what's happened in the, you
in these debates and go after the president, specifically on foreign policy. governor romney hit the president on the response to the consulate attack in libya on his weekly podcast. take a listen. >> we've seen a confused, slow, and inconsistent response to the terrorist attack in libya. a refusal to be frank with the american people about what happened, and a complete failure to explain the growing terrorist threat we face in the region. >> is that the winning line of attack there? >> well, certainly going after the president on what has been one of his strengths in recent years would be one way of going big. foreign policy doesn't tend to be one of the top issues for many voters, even after 9/11, so it won't necessarily help him on the economic front. so i don't know how much it would ultimately yield him, but he's been very tough on president obama on foreign policy, hearing him say, again, something along the lines of what you just plays wouldn't surprise me a bit. >> beth fouhy, thank you so much, and anne kornblut, always a pleasure, and so much so, we'll see you a little bit later this
the president for what he calls a failed foreign policy? an op-ed in today's op-ed journal, romney declared the president is weakening the america's position in the world writing, "by failing to maintain the element of our influence and by stepping away from the allies, president obama has heightened the prospect of conflict and instability. he does not understand in american policy that lax resolve can provoke aggressio aggression. and carriage disorder." after a weekend of debate prep in boston, romney left for denver an wednesday's big event. while the campaign played the game of lowering expectations for the governor. >> obama is a gifted speaker. he has been on the national stage for many years. experienceed debater. he has done the debates before. this is mitt's first time on this stage. >> romney campaign was left to slap itself in the forehead when governor chris christie apparently didn't get the expectations memo. >> wednesday night is the restart of the campaign, i think you will see the numbers start to move right back in the other direction. thursday morning, the entire narrati
obama. the fact is this administration has a terrible record on foreign policy. you now have hillary clinton trying to rush extra money to egypt when i would frankly suspend all aid to egypt. >> sean: $450 million more. >> it's inconceivable. a house committee chairman has put a hold on the money. that's the right thing to do. there's no reason to send the head of the muslim brotherhood another penny. the president in egypt the head of a radical organization dedicated to pushing the united states out of the middle east. >> sean: the first presidential debate is on wednesday. the administration has been spending most of their weekend trying to lower expectations for the great orator obama, even the president saying, well, romney's good, i'm just okay. does that work if you're a sitting president? >> look, incumbent presidents who lose debates are in big trouble. this is a president who has the begins of a new recession, that with all the economic reports wednesday, thursday, friday are pointing to a in recession. the philadelphia federal reserve is pointing to a new recession. the man
in charlotte spiking the football on osama and the only foreign policy achievement of four years they repeated it over and over. and great triumph and then al-qaida sacks the embassy and kills the ambassador and so the administration deceived america thinking it was a film. and the media would let it slide and now it is obvious and no one will care. >> gretchen: that is the most important thing it is all about perception with the american public. 39 days until the election. foreign policy came from the back burner to the front. the message that the administration wanted to cope out there was only about osama bin laden, that is a great message . president obama successfully got rid of that guy . but this message said al-qaida is alive that is bad news. >> brian: the cia director briefed law makers and said it was a spontanous attack. but our sources said ca anyhow what was going on and had the name. a senator out of tennessee this is turning into something like benghazigate. and john kerry has come forward and circulating a letter bipartisan asking the secretary of state to come forward and exp
have a demonstration that has not been clear on foreign policy, and there has been a lack of leadership. in 2009, there were protesters in iran. we heard nothing from our government. in 2011, the government finally stepped forward and we saw some sanctions put in place. i am happy to see european countries have also stepped forward and into a limited sanctions against iran. but we need to have a strong administration who is going to make it clear that a line needs to be drawn. we have never heard from this government. we have never heard them say that iran should not be in reaching uranium. -- enriching uranium. we need to make clear if we are going to be leaders, if the united states of america is going to be a leader in foreign policy and keep stability in this world as has been our mission in the past, then we need to make it clear. >> sen. fischer, thank you. senator kerrey, 30 seconds. >> i'm not running for president so i do not want to disagree with president obama or governor romney on iran, but we cannot allow them to acquire nuclear weapons. but what happens afterwards? they d
something about the foreign policy front. the administration has basic plea changed its account of what happened in libya, where our u.s. ambassador was killed. they said, susan rice said on this broadcast last sunday, after the president of libya said this was the work of terrorists, she said, no, this was because of a spontaneous demonstration that had to do with that film. now they have come around to saying, well, yes, it was a terrorist attack. is mitt romney making enough of this? i haven't heard too much from him on that. >> bob, what struck me-- and i have nope the director of national intelligence for years. he's a bright man. he's a competent man. this administration in effect is now saying, "oh, don't blame the united nations ambassador. don't blame the white house spokesman. don't blame the president, because our intelligence system failed so decisively." i don't know which worries me more, the idea that the intelligence system took weeks to figure out the obvious-- although we are told in fact they had information the day before the attack because the video that went out fr
and said it had to be he must have gotten foreign policy information that must have thrown him all askew. it's like people coming up with all these reasonings instead of looking at it as it was, which were two men on stage talking about the economy and where this country is moving forward and that's what it was! so just judge it for what it was with two men on the stage. not altitude probes or foreign policy secrets. >> brian: it reminds me of this great band, the blues brothers, who found themselves in a pickle and had to lie their way out of it. tell me if this sounds familiar. >> you betrayed me! >> no, i didn't. honest! i ran out of gas! i had a flat tire! i didn't have money for cab fare. my tux didn't come back from the cleaners. a friend came from out of town. there was a earthquake! a terrible flood! it wasn't my fault! i swear to god! >> brian: i just think that's e. that's very similar vein for what we're seeing right now. and i bought all those excuses and i'm buying these ones now. altitude and unexpected something got on my mind before that 90-minute debate. >> gretchen: may

that they don't have a handle on foreign policy. and national security matters. yet, it is going to get messier and messier. in fact, it looks like you know the administration has been involved in a coverup. claiming it was all caused by this youtube video. when, in fact, it was clearly result of the development with request to al-qaeda and terrorism in africa. >> dana: news reports show that the intel community knew it was al-qaeda related in 24 hours. there was other news today. this was on the front page of the "new york times." that the u.s. tracking the killers in the attack on the libya mission. how does it get announced? >> kimberly: they are trying to get political cover to make up for this. this is abysmal failure on the part of the obama administration. an the state department. his state department. repeated requests for made for security to have security of the embassy and consulate. they have blood on their hands. you will end up with dead americaning. good job. >> bob: you were a prosecutor. evidence of facts, name me the evidence and facts. >> bob: these are the intelligence repor

taking our foreign policy in a different direction. the middle east is in flames against america and our ambassador is dead. mr. president, in sudan they will not allow u.s. marines to guard american soil. what do you have to say about that? >> sean: romney has got to understand, they're not going to ask these questions. it's his job to bring it up as of next wednesday. here's andrea mitchell, "nbc nightly news," and she says it's ambassador rice who was sent out with false information that we now know is false, as corroborated by a scrubbed websites at the state department to lie as as did jay carney, as did secretary clinton. watch this. >> it's very unusual for the intelligence community to make this admission. politics are clearly in play. the questions being asked are why did they get it wrong? was it because there was a cover-up or was it because they were trying to avoid acknowledging mistakes this close to an election? so there is always a political context. certainly the white house today and tonight very strongly defending susan rice, but she is in the crosshairs right now of t

: this debate will be about domestic affairs. i want to ask you something about the foreign policy front. the administration has basic plea changed its account of what happened in libya, where our u.s. ambassador was killed. they said, susan rice said on this broadcast last sunday, after the president of libya said this was the work of terrorists, she said, no, this was because of a spontaneous demonstration that had to do with that film. now they have come around to saying, well, yes, it was a terrorist attack. is mitt romney making enough of this? i haven't heard too much from him on that. >> bob, what struck me-- and i have nope the director of national intelligence for years. he's a bright man. he's a competent man. this administration in effect is now saying, "oh, don't blame the united nations ambassador. don't blame the white house spokesman. don't blame the president, because our intelligence system failed so decisively." i don't know which worries me more, the idea that the intelligence system took weeks to figure out the obvious-- although we are told in fact they had informati
, which i believe is focused on foreign policy. i just want the candidates to be asked about this. >> there's also, mika, a front page in the "new york times" that everybody ought to read saying u.s. abandoning hopes for taliban peace deal. just to go back to afghanistan. it says one of the expectations was that we could batter the taliban coming to the table to work out some kind of a deal. well, we all could've handed our government history books that would indicate over history that wasn't going to happen. so the idea that's a surprise that the taliban isn't going to suddenly sit down with us and work out a government and work alongside us should not come as a surprise to people, but apparently it is. now we walk away from that possibility. >> obviously afghanistan has a long history with the british, the soviets, everybody. and there's a famous saying, you can't want democracy for more than they want it for themselves. so we are not going to change the whole culture of afghanistan. it's not why we went there. we went to deal with al qaeda and terrorism and it became a nation-b
the election. gop vice presidential candidate paul ryan expressed concern for the economy and stronger foreign policy in countries like iran and russia and opened up about how his own debate is shaping up against vice president biden. i was sitting down this morning with chris wallace to get all of the details ahead of "fox news sunday." chris, you had an exclusive sit down with the vice presidential nominee and talked with him honestly about where the ticket sits in the polling right now? >> we disagreed. i kept saying it does seem that you are losing and he denied that but did indicate that he thinks that the first debate coming wednesday is very important and interestingly enough there seems to be a change in their approach where up to this point romney has been talking about and his campaign has been talking about it as a referendum on obama. obama's record. and to the degree that it is about romney is he a credible alternative they now see it and i think it is probably because the polls indicate that this old argument isn't breaking through as a choice that you have is a choice between wh
. >> another foreign policy question, senator, you have criticized senator men mendes -- quote, when the mission is complete, we will bring the troops home. and you defined the mission as disables al qaeda and disables the taliban. the taliban are at least sub bornly persistent. are you prepared to see u.s. troops stay indefinite nately. >> i said at this point i agree with the timeline. we want to bring the men and women back home. what trouble -- what troubles me is that when we make decisions for political purposes. perhaps for election purposes, and i'm not sure that flagging our intentions to put out definitely time lines was and would be the smartest answer. you have people that want to do us harm. you have the taliban there think about human beings differently than we do. we know about the atrocity to women. and so what we haven't done a good enough job is inning the educating our country about the bad guys that exist that we need to meet them offshore before they come on shore. it's only been ten years and a little more. since 9/11. >> moderator: your response, sir. menendez:
